Business Models for eHealth - Final Report

Business Models for eHealth - Final Report
This report presents the analysis of a study funded by the ICT for Health Unit to explore business models for the implementation of value-creating and sustainable eHealth systems in Europe. It also introduces a set of policy recommendations for the European Commission and other stakeholders, with the ultimate objectives being: a) the improvement of the overall quality and efficiency of provision of health services in general via eHealth services, taking into consideration the present and future socio-economic and financial challenges faced by national healthcare authorities in Europe; b) the consolidation of eHealth services as a mature market where European industry can play a leading role via the provision of innovative technological and organisational solutions.

The first objective refers to the use of eHealth services and solutions to improve overall healthcare delivery. As argued in the opening stages of the report, these information technology (IT)-enhanced healthcare services can support healthcare delivery organisations and health authorities to provide responses to factors such as Europe's ageing population, the growing prominence of chronic diseases and financial challenges in controlling overall healthcare spending. The second objective refers to the fact that eHealth services and solutions can provide the appropriate responses previously indicated if industry delivers the appropriate technological solutions. Actually, as argued in the report, eHealth represents a substantial market where European industrial players can have a pivotal role.
